• Know when messages have been delivered (D's) and read (R's)

• Allow contacts to view your location live on a map, powered by Glympse

With BBM, what you share is yours to control:
• Timed Messages: Set how long contacts have access to messages and pictures shared in a chat before it disappears from the screen.**
• Message Retraction: 'Retract' a message to remove it from your BBM chat.*
• You choose how to share your information – BBM uses PINs instead of phone numbers or email addresses so that it's more private and you always control who can contact you
• You choose your contacts – 2-way opt-in means you have control over who is able to message you

• Groups – BBM groups help you share pictures, lists and appointments with group members. You can even be in a group with people who aren't part of your own BBM contact list.

• Broadcast messages – Send a message to multiple BBM contacts at one time.

* While these features are designed to remove the message or picture the recipient's BBM chat view, they do not prevent recipients from capturing an image of the content by taking a screenshot or using an image capture device. Retracting a message after it has been read by the recipient will remove the message from the BBM chat view, but will not affect copies of the message that the recipient may have made prior to the message being retracted.

Good but Glitchy
This is good if you want to talk to friends and want to have status updates at the same time. You can also tell if one of your so called friends is ignoring you so you can track them down and well...you can make up the rest. However, despite all of those glorious things there are a few glitches, some have annoyed me. One is that on occasion you will be logged out meaning that if you don't remember your login you will be forced to use one of the countless other apps like bbm. Another is the fact that sometimes it will say you have no internet connection and choose to not allow messages to be sent to you or for a reply to be sent.
For these reasons I give it a 3 star.
Not even one star.
Updated this app yesterday and it took 7 attempts to sign me in. Eventually I was in to find that all of my chat history had been deleted. The reason I updated was to be able to send videos. STILL CANT. There are more buttons on the emoji line asking you to spend money - just don't do that blackberry. Also the reply messages is so annoying - should be an option to turn this off. So after all that disappointment when I saw another update I jumped for joy thinking it was going to correct the failures. So I updated. JUST DONT UPDATE - it deleted everything all over again!!
I woke up to my bbm automatically updated so I tried to go on the app every morning as I do and I had been signed out, first time that I have been signed out as well so when I went to log in several times it comes up "can't connect to the server" at first I thought it was my fault but it's not its the new update. I'm not happy as all my saved chats are on my bbm account. I use it to contact people as I do not have texts or calls so I can not contact my parents now if in an emergency. Please sort it out quick!! Now it's comin up there is a "temporary error"
